Anyone have one? Or the Henry lever action Long Ranger?
I have no idea why but I keep looking at these and the CVA hunter in 44mag.

Lots of info over on Graybeards. Very nice guns except for the heavy trigger. They have figured out an easy fix over there tho. I have handled a 243, looking for a 45/70. I haven't seen the Long Ranger in person but hear every bit as god as the BLR.

I have not shot the Henry single shots yet but I have shot the CVA Scout .44 Magnum. With a 4x scope the one I shot held a sub 2" group at 100 yards with 240gr JHP. I expect it would have been better with a 6x or 3-9 scope. The trigger was great for a factory rifle and it was light enough to carry anywhere.

I have had very limited experience with the Scout rifles, one. A friend from Ms. bought one in 45/70. His wouldn't shoot in your hat. I immediately suspected scope, after, three scopes and 4 different types of ammo from a lead sled we found out it wasn't the scope. I know you get bad ones in anything so maybe that one was it.
